Patient undergoing rhinoplasty need to be prepared to experience different staging of swelling.
Unfortunately, there is no way to have rhinoplasty without swelling and take more time for swelling to resolve after rhinoplasty than after other plastic surgical procedures. Swelling after closed rhinoplasty tends to resolve faster than after open rhinoplasty.
1. Onset of swelling. Swelling develops around the nose and upper face day 1-3 after surgery and tends to look more pronounced during these first 3 days. This usually happens in patients who had work on the nasal bones.
2. Splint Removal . In our practice, the splint comes off on day 5-7 after surgery. At this stage, most of pronounced swelling around the eyes has improved. There may be swelling in the bridge of the nose, face, and upper lip. Noticeable facial swelling improves fast over the next 7-10 days. The upper lip may appear longer and the smile may feel stiff. This resolves gradually within 30-60 days. The tip may look more upturned and it will come down over the next 7-14 days.
3. Upper part of the nose. Although the entire nose will be gradually shrinking and softening, swelling in the upper part of the nose will be resolving faster. By 30-60 days after surgery most upper nasal swelling will subside and the skin will feel soft in the upper part of the nose.
4. The tip. Although one may read online that it takes one year for all nasal swelling to go away, the reality is that it takes several years for all swelling to go away before you can see the final shape. At the end of the first year after surgery, the patients are likely to see 85-90% of swelling resolution and by the end of the second year almost all of swelling will resolve. Patients with think nasal skin may take longer to heal. Once nasal tip swelling resolves, the tip feels softer and tip cartilages become more visible and easier to feel.

Flat, well-toned abs is something everyone wants to make their body look better. When the body does not respond to dieting and exercise there still lies that excess layer of flab in front of the abdomen. Depriving the body of food will not help to diminish the saggy skin either. Pregnancy and massive weight loss can leave the abdominal area with excess loose skin that is unresponsive to even the strictest diet and exercise routine. So what options are Beverly Hills and Los Angeles women and men left with? The solution is a tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck, technically known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure that will remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The abdominal skin is elevated and then pulled down, and then the excess skin is removed. Loose skin is caused by severe weight loss and post-pregnancy, and sometimes trimming the fat can leave all of that skin and remaining fat in the abdomen. In some instances, the abdominal muscles become separated and weaken when the stomach walls enlarge. With a tummy tuck the body will regain its defined shape and smoother and firmer skin.
A new and improved version of the tummy tuck can do even more for a refined body shape. Lipoabdominoplasty is a procedure that combines liposuction and a tummy tuck to enhance results from the tummy tuck. Plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants frequently uses this method to give his patients the best results possible. The procedure sucks out the fat from the flanks of the stomach, arms, back and thighs as the tummy tuck is performed. Most people do not know who is considered good candidates for such a procedure, but it is simple to determine .
The most common causes of a flabby and sagging stomach include:
· Significant fluctuations in weight
· Prior surgery
According to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, tummy tuck surgeries have increased 70 percent since 2000. This indicates that more and more people are trying to maintain the slim body size that they had as they were growing up. Diet and exercise is something that does not always get the job done, but the benefits of a tummy tuck can be life changing.
People who are unhappy with their bodies often experience embarrassment and a drop in confidence. A tummy tuck can help improve the self-confidence of the individual and give them a greater outlook on life. After healing from the procedure, patients no longer feel unattractive or upset with themselves. Their clothes no longer reveal pudgy bellies and love handles. They can put on that bathing suit and reveal their bodies at the beach in the summer. Their confidence increases and they feel better capable of taking on whatever life throws at them.
After the tummy tuck patients no longer feel shy about their bodies and now feel comfortable socializing. Their bodies have given them the ability to be more outgoing and meet other people at public outings with friends and family. They take more time to go out to more intimate events and feel more comfortable leaving their comfort zone.
The results of the procedure even give patients the urge to try new things. Upon seeing the new body that they have been striving for they have the energy to get out and learn how to snowboard, go surfing or enjoying a three-mile nature hike. It can turn them into the life of the party whenever they are out with their friends dancing at a nightclub.
There are a lot of things holding people back from gaining that confidence back. They often wonder if they are even considered a good candidate for a tummy tuck. People never know until they get the information that they need. It is normal to feel shy about a saggy stomach but having a surgery is beneficial to improve life.
Abdominoplasty is a good option for patients if they:
· Are physically healthy and at a stable weight
· Have realistic expectations about their body shape
· Are finished having children
· Do not smoke
Everyone has the right to have a slim and trim waistline. People do not need to feel ashamed about getting work done. These days it is as common as going to the bank. Stop dreaming about having a good life. Get the look that makes the best come out to play. Continue that healthy diet and trim the fat that makes that slim body shine bright in the sun.

However, there are options available to those who want to be proactive and change what they don’t like about themselves. Facial plastic surgery in Beverly Hills is a great choice for permanently fixing the particular aspect of the face that is in question.

One of the most popular cosmetic procedures today is a rhinoplasty. This is the surgical alteration of the nose to improve breathing capacity and to improve the aesthetic appearance of the nose. There are two main ways of performing a rhinoplasty: the open technique and the closed technique. The open techniques differs from the closed in that it involves an incision being made between the two nostrils at the columnella to allow the cosmetic surgeon to separate the nasal skin and pull it up to reveal the underlying nasal structure. This allows your surgeon ease of access to whatever area of the nose they are altering whether it is the bridge or the tip or the sides.
The closed technique, on the other hand, keeps all incisions inside the nose itself. No incisions are made on the visible facially surface. The surgeon instead separates the skins from the nasal structure but does not pull it away. He or she must work within the confines of the nostrils. This technique is best for a nose job in Los Angeles that does not require extensive tweaking to achieve the desired effect. The close technique is beneficial as it usually requires less recovery time and less swelling and bruising. And the most obvious benefit is that it leaves the patient with no visible scarring at all.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures around. Dating back to over 4,000 years ago, rhinoplasty has been used to reconstruct and reshape a person’s nose. Today, rhinoplasty is not only used to correct nostril abnormalities or birth defects, but is also used for cosmetic purposes.

· Difficulty breathing because of a nostril abnormality.
· Excessively flared nostrils.
· A dorsal bump that is too prominent.
· A not proportionate nose in relation to other facial features.
